Caricature and silhouette entertainment can add that extra needed zip to your party. When choosing an artist for your event, it is good to hire an experienced artist with great reviews. Darci Herbold has a degree in art, years of experience, and over 100 great reviews from happy customers on the internet (Yelp, Gig Masters, and others). In some of Darci's past reviews, clients have said "Her caricatures were the hit of the party!" and "Her silhouettes were an elegant addition! ".
Creating caricatures for Disney, as well as other people oriented companies, Darci has a kind, gracious personality and great people skills. Talking to the guest while she is drawing, Darci adds some fun humor into her caricatures. Often you will hear laughter from the guests when she is creating. With kids, she does not "over exaggerate" features so as not to embarrass them.

Darci creates her caricature quickly and accurately. Her fastest caricatures are her “Ultra Quick Caricatures” and just take just 1 to 1:22 minutes per person. These are great for large events. Darci has 3 other speed/styles along with her Color Caricatures. Just let her know and she can text or email some samples.

Some of her past happy clients are: YouTube (the company), Face Book (the Culver City Office), Target, Costco, Verizon, University of Phoenix, Guess Jeans, Hudson Jeans, Visa, Pepsi, ADT Security Systems, Jet Blue, Red Cross, Johnson and Johnson, Toyota, HP, Fletcher Jones Mercedes, Disney movie premiere for "Cinderella", and also Disney Channel's "Austin and Ally" special "Wrap Party", The Magic Castle, an Uber Corporate Event, Cirque du Soleil, and an Aflac Awards Banquet.
Darci has a business license and Entertainers Liability Insurance. And as far as awards, she won the "Top Caricaturist 2015, 2012" and "Top Corporate Entertainer 2014" as well as “Best Of” 2012, 2013, 2014, and 2015.

Great for: 1st Birthdays, Weddings, Corporate Events, Coed Baby or wedding Showers, Bar/Bat Mitzvahs, Quinceañeras, Sweet 16, Winter Formals, Proms, Grad Nights, Homecomings, Adult and Kid's Birthday Parties, Trade Shows, Retirement Parties, Business Expos, Corporate Meeting Ice Breakers, Health Fairs, Anniversaries, Holiday Parties. Or themed parties: Super Hero, Paris, Luau, Decades & Music, Hollywood, Under the Sea, Tropical, Toy Story, Frozen Parties, and more!

Darci's silhouette art is also great entertainment. She hand cuts Her silhouettes on the spot without any pre-drawing. The guest's silhouette is put in a beveled edge mat board black frame and is placed in two bags: first a cellophane sleeve/bag and second a translucent white gift bag.
When She cuts the silhouettes, Darci cuts out two at a time. The first goes to the guest and the second silhouette is for you for an album that she provides. Darci brings an assortment of colored pens and the guests are encouraged to write a personal message next to the silhouette in this special keepsake album.
A couple of phrases Darci hears a lot when she is cutting out silhouettes are " amazing!" and "I have never had this done before". Darci cuts quickly and her attention to detail is enjoyed by all.

Practicing fast realistic and cartoon drawings for years as a young person, Darci later studied art at Long Beach State and honed Her skills. A year after graduating, Darci started Her own art business at Ports O Call Village in San Pedro. Here she did realistic watercolors, caricatures, and silhouettes and maintained her business for 9 1/2 years. During this time, she also started her off-site business. With this business she traveled to events to create quick watercolors, caricatures, and silhouettes for her client's Guests.

Darci also does ”Quick Realist Portrait Drawings” and “Event Painting”.

Do not hesitate to book Her before someone else books her for the day of your event. Your guests will be thrilled with their "take home" keepsake!

Darci was/is a very professional and personable artist. She arrived to our event early to set-up as requested. She's very flexible and quick to get her drawings complete allowing more people to get their caricature done without compromising the artistic view and talent of each drawing. She accommodated over 200 employees requesting group & individual caricatures with various themes. I would absolutely hire Darci again and recommend her to anyone looking for a really fun and personable artist! Thank you Darci for helping make our company party a success :)
